Update: Martinez (knee) said he felt good after Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, MLive.com reports. "Honestly, I'm not really thinking about the knee," Martinez said. "I'm just letting the fans know, I'm not thinking about it. I come to spring training now like I used to be: just getting ready to get to the season."
Recommendation: Friday marked the first time Martinez has taken at-bats in a game since Oct. 11, 2011. He went 0-for-2 and was hit by a pitch, but Martinez was at least able to connect and put the ball in play. While it will likely take the 34-year-old some time to get comfortable in the batters box again, it's good to hear he's put the knee injury out of his mind.
